Open all hours

'I can explain that shot. Arnold (Palmer) moved his wallet to the other pocket.

Ben Crenshaw golfing legend made that crack about the greatest golfer of all time and his trust wallet, and that is what the wallet has always been trust, a friend to be relied on.

IL Bussetto, hand crafted Italian wallets know the true value of this simple, but important piece of menswear.

The Milan based company, sites; making quality and originality of our production our ambition'. So that speaks for itself me thinks.

The amazing range covers all aspects form coin cases, to classic wallet, to iPhone case and like a goo d watch, they make a look complete.

The ales looking coin case is manufactured using tanned leather, in a variety of colours, this rounded horseshoe shape case flips open, with nice leather tag to clip back into a lock mode.

The embossed , but same colour logo, is a nice touch.

Snug fitting into your jeans or lightweight penguin jacket, the small zip wallet which has three card holder pockets on the outside, and a zipped inner case for coins or further cards. The stitched outer is a nice touch, combing style and practicality. Available in olive and came this is a nice piece, as is the card flap case which comes in two parts, with a horseshoe opening to remove cards with ease.

The rounded edging makes this case slide into a jacket pocket with consummate ease, thicker leather than the previous zip wallet, the card flap is more like the conic case in make. A truly classic piece which has remained unchanged down the years.

The bi-fold leather wallet, which come in purple and green is an icon and the Bussetto touches make this a must for anyone with style and design etched into their heart. The exterior is brushed smooth leather finish with tight stitching along the frame. Inside is where the beauty begins, the eight card holder pockets come in camel leather, with the embossed logo in tan stands out and will ensure style and use for years to come.

I must put my hand on my heart and say as a man who has smashed four iPhones, but refuses to buy a crappy rubber 'high street' ace to hide this technical wonder in, my reservations were proved flawed on seeing the Bussetto case. It has a tight smooth leather fit, and button over holder to keep contents safe.

The thick leather , same as coin and card cases provides a tough smooth holder, with an open front allowing access to screen. This case provides a superb the and now style meeting, with the iconic retro feel of the case, compared to the phone itself.


All the items come with a pouch for a cover, with gold embossed logo on.
